Northwestern might not score. Start from there and figure out what you need from a rested Ohio State. The line has remained steady at OSU -27.5, and the Wildcats are able to muck it up a bit and keep scores low – look at the Wisconsin game – but the biggest concern is effort. Northwestern will get its doors blown off, and it’ll keep trying. Whatever. Expect the line to go up just before game time.

A whole lot of reasonably smart people are begging America to go with Illinois at home catching 31 against Wisconsin. The problem continues to be a Badger D that you’d think would buckle just a wee bit once in a while, and outside of the win over Northwestern, it just doesn’t. Even so, the Illini O should come up with at least a few scoring drives, and Wisconsin should just be business-like, get up, take the win, and get out.

As much as Purdue was the right play against Maryland last week – because it was way overdue for a big game – is now the opposite the other way against Iowa. The Hawkeyes have spent the last two games dealing with Michigan and Penn State – the offense would like to come out and play now. The 17.5 shouldn’t be any semblance of an issue.

AT SOME POINT Rutgers has to be able to do SOMETHING … right? This whole Minnesota dominance thing has only come up over the last six quarters in the win over Illinois and last week’s whacking of Nebraska. Assume the Scarlet Knights can finally get one touchdown – that might just be enough to cover the 28.5 at home.

Originally I thought the Terps could hang with and handle Indiana enough to win outright, and at least cover the 5.5 … nah. The world isn’t giving the Hoosiers quite enough credit, and it’s not dogging the painfully underwhelming Terps enough. It’ll be interesting to see where the line moves before kickoff, but the people who know Maryland seem to think this could be a way-easy call the other way – the team is just too banged up.

Iowa was JUST a two-point conversion away from covering against Penn State. It was a ridiculous call to take the Nittany Lions to win in Iowa City and not cover the 3.5, but it almost happened. Keeping in mind that the last several Michigan-Penn State games have been ugly blowouts, assume a defensive fight, assume the Nittany Lion offense isn’t going to blow up, and LOVE that a Wolverine team that could win this outright is getting nine. Love the under on the 47 just as much.
